ANALYSIS: Cowley also added, "Two weeks ago, Markkanen said he’s looking to sign with a team that values him as a starter." The Bulls have committed to Nikola Vucevic after trading for him at this year's deadline. Chicago also rosters 2020 No. 4 pick Patrick Williams and has veteran Thaddeus Young signed through 2021-22. Markkanen averaged 13.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game this season while shooting 40.2 percent from distance.
